New Williams Leaving Pearl's Tigers

Auburn basketball guard New Williams is no longer on the Auburn team.

Auburn, Ala.--Sophomore guard New Williams, who has not played this season, plans to transfer from the Auburn basketball team, Coach Bruce Pearl announced on Thursday.

“We wish New the best,” Pearl said of the player from Inglewood, Calif. “He has a terrific future. Last year was difficult because of all those injuries, and this year and the future, it just looks like a numbers game that presents less opportunity. New has grown on and off the court and genuinely respects and cares about Auburn.”

Williams has not decided on a college to attend. Last season as a true freshman he averaged 0.9 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.2 assists in 6.4 minutes in 21 games. He scored a career-high four points and had two rebounds in a career-high 16 minutes at Vanderbilt. He scored three points and had a career-best five rebounds at Tennessee last season.
